Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
11 See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand. 11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!
12 It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 12 Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.
13 For even those who receive circumcision do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may glory in your flesh. 13 Not even those who are circumcised obey the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your flesh.
14 But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
15 For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 Henceforth let no man trouble me; for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. 17 Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
